Check out this incredibly cool online course about the instructional strategy “Frames” by a former classmate of PIDP 3250, Amanda Klassen.


Instructional strategy aside, the Articulate 360 Rise platform seems amazing. Considering the current trend in mobile learning – and the fact that I’m a big believer in people being able to access education on any device, at any time, anywhere in the world (with an internet connection) – I will be investigating how to get involved in developing on that platform. At $500-$1000 per year it’s not cheap, but if your life was trying to develop online courses it seems like a great option.

Frames is a strategy that I’ve earmarked in the textbook and I’ll be looking for the earliest opportunity to use.  It’s meant to foster analysis and critical thinking, is collaborative, focuses on reading and writing, can be done in a single lesson and has a high degree of online transferability.
